The Conch Republic Celebrates

Rejoice the Key West Lifestyle at the 38th Annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration in the beautiful Florida Keys November 27th through the 30th!

From the raising of the Conch Republic flag at Mallory Square to the burning of the Hurricane flag to end hurricane season, the Conch Republic Independence Celebration will elect Royalty, race miniature beds, clean up Higgs Beach, engage in a Rum Battle, present an Art-to-Wear Fashion Show, and more!

The Secretary of State of the Conch Republic, the Exalted Capt. James R. Gilleran, has proclaimed, "You have wittingly chosen to participate in activities (some of which you will recall, and some of which you will not) here the micro-nation of the Conch Republic. We welcome all comers who understand the value of humor, community, and a passion to encourage others to behave in a proud and foolish manner. The only requirement for entry is an understanding that to be in an alternate reality you have to participate in an alternate reality.”
